REAL LOVE: Optimus…Way Past Her Prime

So I am starting something new.

A regular theme of blog posts called, Real Love.

One of the things I fight the most in the League are perceptions about love and relationships that have been perpetuated by media.  Without proper relationship role models, we are constantly looking for unrealistic bullshit. Highly romantic.  Highly dramatic.  Totally exhausting.

Trust me, you don’t even want the relationship you think you do.  Grand gestures and romance are nothing but moments.

We are aiming for real love.  Love that is created between two people.  Love that can grow in the cracks of imperfection. Love that is based on respect, appreciation, support and real life shit.

That is mother fucking love!

And that is what we are doing here.

This podcast is what gave me the idea for Real Love.  After laughing until I cried, I thought…this is love.  This is what real love looks like.  I want to have that conversation.

So here we are.  Listen up and enjoy to this great story from This American Life.

Oh, and if you see or hear of a real love story, contact me!
